P&G purchases 100% renewable electricity in U.S., Canada and Western Europe

Procter & Gamble has reached its 2020 goal of purchasing 100% renewable electricity in the U.S. and Canada. The Company exceeded its original goal by extending the purchase of 100% renewable electricity to Western Europe. These three markets are among its largest and represent over 70% of P&G’s purchased electricity. The next step for the company is to purchase 100% renewable electricity globally by 2030.

P&G’s largest individual contributors to its renewable energy production are its wind farm in Tyler Bluff, Texas, which offsets 100% of the electricity needed for its Fabric and Home Care facilities in the U.S. and Canada to produce brands like Tide, Downy, Cascade and Mr. Clean, and its onsite combined heat and power biomass facility in Albany, Georgia, which provides 100% of the Bounty and Charmin steam requirements at this site.

The company also strive to reduce emissions across its operations through a diverse portfolio of renewable energy projects focused on wind, solar, geothermal, hydro and renewable energy certificates.

We are proud of our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and leave the world a better place for generations to come,” said Virginie Helias, P&G’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “Our primary goal is, and will continue to be, to deliver the superior products our consumers can trust, with the reassurance that behind each P&G product is a supply chain committed to environmental responsibility.
